Concert - Chris Vance Quartet
There’s a scene in the film La La Land where Ryan Gosling’s character is trying to explain jazz to a jazz hater. He says, “This is the dream! It’s conflict and compromise! It’s very, very exciting!” Longtime Lakewood musician Chris Vance leads an all-star quartet as they play on existing melodies and rhythms with the goal of creating something new together. Vance, the owner of Vance Music studios on Madison Avenue, is an adjunct music professor at both Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College. Using their unique interpretation of a wide selection of the jazz repertoire, as well as their own compositions, Vance and other Cleveland greats will fill the afternoon with excitement.
